“Heidi” – Back at last after all these years (at the National Children’s Theatre)

Send to Kindle

Playing March 15 – April 17: An atmosphere of great excitement will soon be gripping the National Children’s Theatre as preparations for Joyce Levinsohn’s Easter holiday production of Heidi get under way. Heidi is one of the most-loved children’s stories of all time. Johanna Spyri’s stories have been translated into 40 languages, and more than 80,000,000 copies of her books have been sold …

HeidiNo child should grow up without having seen Heidi come to life,” says Joyce Levinsohn. “Its message is one for all South African children, as it’s about the power of love, about conquering hardships, and about caring and sharing. Even though it’s a story about a little Swiss girl growing up in the Alps, it’s both timeless and topical.”

Perfect for children of all ages, Heidi promises to be a fun-filled adventure with thrills and spills, laughter and a few tears, combining beautiful music and the kind of audience participation that is a hallmark of National Children’s Theatre productions.

After seeing our Heidi, the children will want to go home and read all the Heidi books, and that’s a big part of our mission – to encourage literacy,” adds Joyce.

Don’t miss this delightful production of such a well-loved story! (Playing March 15 – April 17)

This production has been made possible by the generous support of the National Arts Council, the Department of Arts & Culture, and the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund.
